Shah Rukh Khan is currently working on Aanand L Rai’s next starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. After a break in South Africa, Ms Sharma will soon join the sets to finish her portions of the film. The film after that will go to post-production as there is a lot that needs to be done at that stage. There has been a lot of buzz in the industry about SRK’s next after Rai’s next especially since there is no film announced so far. Recent buzz suggested that the superstar will begin work on the Rakesh Sharma biopic which was to earlier star Aamir Khan. But we just heard, before that, Shah Rukh Khan is all set to team up with Deepika Padukone for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next after Padmavati.

Though there are reports that Khan will do the Rakesh Sharma biopic that Aamir recommended, we hear the Jab Harry Met Sejal actor has other plans. According to sources close to the actor, SRK and Bhansali have finally found a project that excited both of them. The actor-director duo has been wanting to come together for a project for long now. The last they collaborated was way back in 2002. SLB is expected to begin work on this project immediately after Padmavati releases next year. The filmmaker has also spoken to Deepika for the same. This would be the fourth time that the jodi will be seen together after three back to back successes in the form of Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express and Happy New Year.
